Jeanne Eloise Hemmert Terry
1921 ~ 2014

JEANNE ELOISE HEMMERT TERRY, born January 5, 1921 passed away at the age of 93 on May 16, 2014 in Orem Utah. She was born in Detroit Michigan to Albin John and Margaret Sarah (Lawler) Hemmert. She graduated from high school and began Secondary Studies in oil painting and sculpture. She had a real love for life and beauty, so with a girlfriend she traveled and lived in New York City then adventured all the way to San Francisco. She enlisted in The Women’s Army Corp (WAC), served as an Occupational Therapist where she met her husband Farrell Langston Terry. She was honorably discharged, and moved to Richfield Utah to begin and raise her family. She gave birth to 7 sons in 8 years and then finally got her long hoped for lovely baby girl in child #8. As a single mom she raised 6 sons and 1 daughter, worked fulltime for the forest service, earned a bachelor’s degree in Art Education, worked as a teacher, was an award-winning regional oil painter, and participated faithfully in her LDS faith. She served an LDS Mission to Denver after her children were grown. She loved the outdoors, travel, painting, sculpting; and above all she loved her family. Her family loved her spry spunky and energetic approach to life. Her descendants hope to honor her name by emulating her relentless strength through life’s joys and challenges.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her brother Albin John Hemmert Jr.; and two sons Patrick Paul whom she lost in his twenties and Thomas Kevin whom she lost after only days of life. She is survived by children: Michael (Trish), Timothy (Linda), Christopher (Sandy), Dennis (Joyce), Kelly, and Marya (Rob) Behrend, 34 beloved Grandchildren and 85 delightsome Great Grandchildren. She knew every name and remembered every birthday with a special card.

Jeanne Terry was faithful to the end in every way: her LDS faith, her strength as matriarch of her family, her humble approach to being honest to others about herself and what she believed in, and in her love. Life’s most difficult challenges never overcame her force of spirit and work. She was to those who knew her an unstoppable force that was never overbearing. Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, May 21, 2014 at 11:00 am at the Geneva Heights 2nd LDS Ward Chapel, 590 North 900 West, Orem. Family and friends may call Tuesday, May 20, 2014 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm and again on Wednesday from 9:30 to 10:30 am at the church. Interment to follow at the Orem City Cemetery, 1520 North 800 East, Orem.
